A few days ago I received an interesting email — which can be applied to ANY goal even though the person was referring to the lottery. Here’s the message:

Subject: Problem with law of attraction and Lotteries
Date: Mon, 4 Aug 2008 19:47:32 -0300
I have read your interesting article “Millionaire mind: Win the Lottery – Luck or law of attraction?”
But sorry, I have found a problem with Law Of Attraction and Lotteries.
Imagine two guys: Paul and James who love to play in lotteries. Imagine there is an equipment called “Belief-meter” that shows the belief intensity in a scale 0~100. When applied to Paul and James the Belief-meter shows 100 to both guys. So, they have total, complete and absolute belief they will win in lottery.
Now these two guys will play in a lottery 5/50. But Paul chose the numbers 1-2-3-4-5 and James chose 46-47-48-49-50. Of course, the law of attraction will FAIL for one of these guys, since they chose different numbers, although they have total, complete and absolute belief they win in lottery.
How can you explain this situation?
= = = = = = = = = =.
The answer you will be reading here applies to ANY goal — not only to winning the lottery. So, you’d better read carefully and absorb what you are reading.
The truth is that the law of attraction will NOT fail, but the Law of Attraction may make BOTH guys fail — NOT just only one of them!!!
Let’s start by saying that playing the Lottery is just another investment — just like investing in the stock market, real estate, commodities. The Universe doesn’t make any difference. The difference is only in your own mind. And lots MORE people lose EVERYTHING in the stock market, real estate and commodities than in the lottery. (Refer to our free Course on the lottery)
Too many gurus and experts out there keep saying that the Law of Attraction works for everything. But, they will give you all sorts of reasons why it doesn’t apply to the lottery.
Why not? If the Law of Attraction does not work for the lottery, then we have an exception. And then we may ask “How many more exceptions are there?”.
The REAL name of the “commercial” Law of Attraction is the LAW of BELIEF. The Law of Belief is the Law of Life.
And there are NO exceptions to this Law.
The Law is unbiased, impersonal, unforgiving with anyone who does not follow it. If you do not follow the Law you are doomed.
I want to remind you of the motion picture “Les Miserables”. For me, the best version is the one played by Richard Jordan (in the role of Jean Valiean) and Anthony Perkins (as Inspector Javert).
For Inspector Javert, there is no compassion, no mercy. ONLY the LAW!
The Universe operates in a similar way. If you do not obey the LAW, you are doomed — There is ONLY THE LAW!
So, you’d better learn about the LAW now!
The BEST way to deal with the Law of Belief (also known as the Law of Attraction) is to understand once and for all that those famous vibrations the gurus and experts are talking about are CAUSED by the BELIEFS and VALUES you hold at the Subconscious level.
Take care of those beliefs and values, and you will automatically generate the CORRECT ‘high’ vibrations that are exactly what you need to attract the results you desire.
WHY is it that they don’t teach you that? Either they are ignorant of the real LAW and how it works . . . or business is REAL GREAT for them!
There is absolutely NO NEED for you to become OBSESSED with your vibrations as these gurus and experts command you to do — while they keep SELLING more and more Law of Attraction books, DVDs, and paraphernalia. Great for THEIR business, BAD for YOU! (Refer to many of my previous articles about how the Law of Belief operates)
The super rich and super successful people do not go around OBSESSING about the BAD vibrations. They simply get busy ZAPPING from their minds the limiting, conflicting beliefs and values, and replacing them with beliefs/values that are supportive of their goals. They know that by doing that, the ‘vibrations’ will take care of themselves automatically without them becoming OBSESSED — which is the opposite of what most of the gurus and experts tell you to do!
After this enthusiastic but ACCURATE introduction, let’s answer the question in the email above.
It is 100% possible that both Paul and James believe 100% that each will win.
In fact, the human Belief-O-Meter may confirm that each one believes 100%. (Refer to one of my previous articles on how to make your own Belief-O-Meter).
But . . . and here is the BIG catch . . . the human Belief-O-Meter ONLY measures the magnitude of the belief about winning the lottery (25%, 50%, 77%, 93%, 100%).
The human Belief-O-Meter does NOT indicate that there might just be some HIDDEN and CONFLICTING BELIEF and/or VALUE that will make totally USELESS the 100% belief in winning the lottery.
I will give you a few examples.
What if Paul believes 100% he will win the jackpot but, hidden deep in his Subconscious, he has the religious belief that “Rich people never go to heaven”? And he wants to go to heaven. This hidden belief will neutralize the 100% belief in winning the lottery. Paul may not know of this hidden conflict. But the Subconscious does and it will make certain Paul will not win!
Or maybe Paul believes that “Rich people are dishonest” and one of Paul’s highest VALUES is “honesty”. If he wins and becomes rich, he will become dishonest. And he will AVOID that at all cost because his subconscious mind will not allow him to go against his deep held VALUE of ‘honesty’. Therefore, his 100% belief in winning the lottery is in CONFLICT with a deep VALUE. He will NOT win! (or if he wins, he will very quickly lose all the money).
What if Paul has this VALUE that “It is better to give than to receive”? People with those USELESS values never receive anything, except problems. In Paul’s case, his Subconscious will NOT allow him to win because it would be in CONFLICT with Paul’s VALUE that receiving is NOT a good as giving. Does this remind you of those persons you may know who are always giving and helping others but who hardly receive anything in return? (Remember, the Universe doesn’t give a hoot because you did not obey the LAW of Belief which requires that you eliminate all conflicting values!).
What if James had this BELIEF that “We cannot afford it” because he heard his parents saying it over an over again while growing up? That belief is still in his Subconscious. It was never eliminated and replaced by “Yes, I can afford anything I want”. Now, if James were to win the jackpot in the lottery he will be able to afford anything! And that is something the Subconscious cannot allow because it is in conflict with James’s current belief “I cannot afford it”.
And as long as James keeps holding that limiting belief, he is doomed to failure.
What if a long time ago, when James was a 4-5 year old kid, his mother got very upset with him and even punished him for placing a coin in his mouth while she yelled at him “Money is dirty!”?
Now, many years later, subconsciously, he will avoid money because ‘money is dirty” and he doesn’t want to be/get dirty! Again, a very limiting and forgotten experience created a belief that is in conflict with having money. James forgot all about that incident and what his mother said. But his Subconscious did NOT and will not allow him to win money because that would make him dirty. Actually,James will have all kinds of problems making ANY money because of that hidden belief.
What if Paul believes 100% he will win the jackpot but, hidden deep in his Subconscious, he has the belief that “It is real hard for me to make money”? This hidden belief will neutralize the 100% belief in winning the lottery. Why? Because to win the lottery the only EXTERNAL ACTION need is to BUY a lottery ticket. And that is TOO EASY! Paul may not know of this hidden conflict. But his Subconscious mind does and will make certain Paul will not win because it will be TOO EASY!
And this conflict will be increased even MORE if Paul happens to also believe that “making money through HARD work and by overcoming tremendous difficulties has LOTS of merit and easy money has NONE!”
(We all have heard the GREAT VALUE of working real hard, being defeated many times, UNTIL finally one wins against all odds! — propagated throughout history over and over again until TOTALLY hypnotizing the human race with the terribly LIMITING, USELESS and FALSE belief that ‘making money and achieving goals has only MERIT if done the HARD way and it is the ONLY way one can do it!”.)

I believe you can easily come up with more examples of your own.
= = = = = =
The point I want you to understand is that MOST gurus and experts only talk about regular beliefs. And they SELDOM, if ever, teach you that you MUST start by FIRST identifying/eliminating limiting. conflicting BELIEFS and VALUES, and then, replace them with useful, supportive ones. We do teach you that and place GREAT emphasis on the fact that doing it is absolutely CRUCIAL to your success.
And ONLY Anthony Robbins and our Courses talk about the CRITICAL importance of VALUES and how to get rid of any conflicting values and replace them with the ones that will help you achieve your goals — and NOT block them.
Read carefully because the following not only applies to the lottery but to ANY goal, in ANY area of ,your life:
A — You can have a deep belief and certainty in getting your goal, but IF you have another hidden limiting BELIEF that is in CONFLICT with that goal, that ONE limiting belief will neutralize your 100% belief in achieving your goal and BLOCK your way — until that limiting belief is identified, eliminated and replaced by a useful, supportive belief.
B — You can have a deep belief and certainty in getting your goal, but IF you have another hidden limiting VALUE that is in CONFLICT with that goal, that ONE limiting value will neutralize your 100% belief in achieving your goal and BLOCK your way — until that limiting value is identified, eliminated and replaced by a useful, supportive value.
That’s is one of the most common reasons why — NOT only in the Lottery — MOST people do NOT get what they want. They work on believing 100% that they will get what they want, They can get 100% in the human Belief-O-Meter,
BUT . . . they IGNORE or WERE NEVER TAUGHT that they must also work on a different type of belies: VALUES.
*** Note: Value can be dealt with as an emotional ‘state’ (as in NLP) or as a different type of belief (the belief that something as little or a lot of ‘desirability’). Or as BOTH a belief and an emotional ‘state’.
One more time . . . . . .
The human Belief-O-Meter will ONLY indicate how much (50%,10%, 75%, 85%, 100%) you believe that you will win the lottery (or achieve ANY goal, in ANY area). . It does not say to you (and your Subconscious will not tell you either on its own initiative):
“John, Robert, Mary, etc., YOU have this conflicting VALUE that “money is evi”l, or that “rich people do not go to heaven”, or that “rich people are dishonest”, that “there are other things more important than money”. Therefore, as long as you continue holding any one of these conflicting VALUES, you cannot win”. OR . . .
“John, Robert, Mary, etc., YOU have this conflicting, limiting BELIEF that “Money is dirty”, “You cannot afford it”, or that “It is very hard for you to make money”. Therefore, as long as you continue holding any or all of these limiting beliefs you cannot win”.
In this case, it is NOT the belief in winning the lottery that is the problem. The problem is that one BELIEF (about winning) is in total CONFLICT with a hidden VALUE and/or another hidden BELIEF,
That is WHY we teach that you must not only identify/eliminate limiting, useless beliefs and replace them with beliefs that are NOT in conflict with your goals. You must ALSO identify/ eliminate the hidden CONFLICTING values and replace then with VALUES that are in perfect harmony with your other beliefs and goals.
There are many people who are absolutely certain they will achieve a certain goal. And, SOMEHOW, they always come up short.
The answer: their absolute belief and certainty have found ANOTHER hidden, conflicting belief and/or value which totally neutralize(s) their belief in total victory!
So, the question for you is:
A — Do you know what your BELIEFS are regarding your goal (be it winning the lottery or ANY other goal)? Do you know which BELIEFS are in CONFLICT with the goal(s) you want to achieve? If you do not know what your beliefs are and what conflict they can produce in your life, you will have lots of difficulty getting what you want.
B — Do you know what your VALUES are? Do you know in what order (sequence) they are? Do you know which VALUES are in CONFLICT with the goal(s) you want to achieve? If you do not know what your values are and what conflict they can produce in your life, you will have lots of difficulty getting what you want.
Now, you know what MOST gurus and experts do NOT know or, for some MYSTERIOUS reasons, FAIL to teach you about.
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS KNOWLEDGE and straighten out your beliefs and values. Once you achieve that, your vibrations will automatically take care of themselves.
